    Scope & contentThe purpose of this research is to explore the early technology of cement milling, a neglected aspect of the history of the cement industry, accounts of which usually focus on the development of the kiln as the heart of this industrial process.

    This is an application of milling technology overlooked by the traditional mills community, whose attention is directed more towards corn milling for flour production and related processes.
